Lever 2
KappaQ-Energy Components


The second lever, "Components", deals with the energy efficiency of individual components.

If the ventilation solution is correctly planned and dimensioned and energy-optimized, the use of energy-efficient components can further massively reduce energy consumption. Each individual component of an air treatment system influences its energy requirements. And, subsequently, with each component, the energy efficiency can be increased and thus the power consumption reduced. After all, a system is only as energy-efficient as its weakest link. Our experience has shown that the energy efficiency of the individual components is often only taken into account on the surface. For example, by opting for an energy-efficient fan motor, electricity in the low single-digit percentage range can be saved, while an incorrect flow to the fan can cause an additional energy demand of up to 65%.


Our recommendation


  • Use the experience in your company and draw on the know-how of external partners to determine the energy efficiency of all components.
  • Always evaluate individual components based on their energy consumption, in addition to their basic function.

Case study

A customer asked us to replace an outdated bag filter system for secondary dedusting in a smelting plant. At the same time, the air performance and separation efficiency also needed to be increased.

Together with the customer, we developed a system concept based on the newly developed filter technology of the Kappa Ekon®. This made it possible to reduce the filter system's spatial requirements and at the same time increase its air and separation performance. Above all, however, it was possible to reduce energy consumption.

  • Thanks to the development of a Kappa Ekon® fine dust and energy-saving filter, the power consumption could be reduced by 658,622 kWh per year compared to a state-of-the-art solution.
  • This corresponds to annual CO2 savings of 482,100 kg, as well as the CO2 filtration equivalent of 38,550 fully grown beech trees annually.







KappaQ-Energy is the energy saving concept for minimizing the energy costs of ventilation systems.

It illustrates which factors influence the energy requirements of ventilation and air conditioning systems and which levers make it possible to massively reduce energy use permanently and sustainably.
